Here’s a link to the Harvey Girl documentary-in-progress, “Opportunity Bound,” we screened at the Santa Fe event, and which several people have asked about. The LA-based filmmaker, Katrina Parks, is a committed Fredhead and Harvey Grrrl and is still doing interviews all over the Southwest.

One of the best parts of writing Appetite for America was getting to know the Harvey Girl enthusiasts–like Brenda Thowe at BNSF, the queen of the Harvey Girls, who will give a talk on her work with HG history at our event in Santa Fe on April 11 at La Fonda. I’ve also met a lot of Harvey Girls and their families at the reunion in San Diego, and through research–we tracked down many new/old photos that had never been seen, and even a few diaries. I hope the living Harvey Girls and their families will use this section of the blog to stay in touch!
